Lim­er­ick-based in­de­pen­dent la­bel Out On a Limb (OOaL) Records hosts a Christ­mas party at Dublin's Twisted Pep­per on De­cem­ber 12th. The la­bel is ex­pect­ing its busiest year yet in 2010. Play­ing on the night will be Rest, Wind­ings and Hooray for Hu­mans, and the first 20 peo­ple in the door on the night will re­ceive a free one-of-a-kind com­pi­la­tion CD, fea­tur­ing unique art­work by var­i­ous mem­bers of bands on the OOaL ros­ter. There’ll also be a raf­fle and DJ sets from Wind­ings and Crayon­smith.

Ciarán Ryan from the la­bel ad­mit­ted that 2009 had been a quiet year, but said their plans for the fu­ture were shap­ing up nicely.

“In 2010, we plan a lot more reg­u­lar re­leases from ex­ist­ing and pos­si­bly new OOaL acts, lots of la­bel nights around the coun­try, bring­ing some new acts to the ta­ble, and hav­ing a num­ber of lim­ited re­leases – hand­made CDs, down­loads, etc, etc,” he said. “The orig­i­nal idea was, and still is, to put out records from bands that we re­ally dig. It's quite a sim­plis­tic agenda, I sup­pose, but that’s es­sen­tially it.”

Hooray for Hu­mans
